Communication Development

CD Program StudentsThe Communication Development Program serves students in first through eighth grade with severe speech and/or language deficits that interfere with their educational achievement in the general education setting or resource setting.  The CD program supports and reinforces speech and language development throughout the entire school day so that students can be successful in the general education setting.  A full time special education teacher and a part-time speech/language pathologist are assigned to each CD class.  Together the speech/language pathologist and teacher develop instructional methods that focus on further development of students’ language skills in the academic and social contexts.  These methods are reinforced by the instructional assistants and related service personnel.  To further enhance speech and language development, the program utilizes community based activities and the home setting as vehicles for students to apply the skills they are learning to the “”real world””.
